I don’t usually do the foody thing — I love to cook and give dinner parties, I’m just not into the whole sharing recipes thing — but my dad sent this to me this morning and after a little surfing I think I’ve found enough sources to convince me that this is real. One source says you can freeze these. I love the idea of making and freezing uncooked omelets.
Crack two, large or extra-large eggs into a quart-sized Ziploc freezer (very important) bag.
Add whatever omelet ingredients you like such as vegetables, cooked meats and cheeses to the bag.
Seal the bag, being very careful to squeeze out as much air as possible, and then shake to mix the eggs and ingredients.
Drop the bag into a pot of rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes.
One large pot may accommodate six bags. For more omelets use additional pots of water.
Lift the bag out with tongs and open carefully to avoid burns from escaping steam (think microwave popcorn).
The omelet will roll out easily onto the waiting plate.
If you try this at home, let me know how it works out and any alterations you may make. I’m going to give it a whirl this weekend.
And just think, with a bottle of chilled champagne and several bag-o-omelets in the fridge, you’ve got the perfect late night snack or morning-after breakfast just waiting to be shared.
